On a happier note I've won a giveaway on Talking Beads blog. I have to make a bracelet from a kit she is going to send me and let her know how it goes. I can even choose the colours I want. Very exciting and also nice to make some jewellery for a change. Given that the last prize I won was a tin of squid, its a pleasant suprise to actually win something nice for a change!
Also check out Totally Tutorials blog. I found this on Stumble. They post a tutorial everyday and todays was a fab one for making a childs pillowcase dress (I had been searching for one online only hours earlier). Well worth a look.
